There's been a few weather warnings for tonight, keep pets in tonight if possible. If not make sure they are secure and in well insulated beds away from the cold.
Little Miss Mimi was in today to see Michael for her puppy vaccinations. She was mad for kisses and even made friends with one of our teddy bear models 😂 I don’t think we can handle any more cuteness today, Mimi has distracted us from enough work 🙈
WILL DIABETES AFFECT MY PETS LIFE EXPECTANCY? Early diagnosis is key in diabetes, along with effective treatment and monitoring. A diabetic dog or cat should have the same life expectancy than that of a non-diabetic pet. Diabetic pets can have a great quality of life as long as the disease in managed and monitored effectively. HOW WILL MY VET TEST MY PET FOR DIABETES? Our vets will always begin with a full health check and in depth discussion with the owner to discuss the pets symptoms and history. Both blood and urine samples are necessary in order to confirm the presence of high glucose levels. Once diabetes is confirmed, then treatment can begin. HOW DO I LOOK AFTER A PET WITH DIABETES? Although there is no cure for diabetes, the disease can be successfully managed with the help of your vet. Daily insulin injections are usually required to restore your pet’s insulin level and control their blood glucose levels. Many owners are anxious about giving injections, but it’s easier than you think, and you’ll quickly learn how to handle the dosing routine with little stress for you or your pet. Diet plays a vital role in helping to keep your pet’s diabetes regulated. Your veterinarian can recommend a diet that’s best suited to the needs of your pet. A high-quality, consistent source of protein is an essential part of any diabetic diet. It is important to feed your pet based on its ideal body weight. Consistent timing and size of meals is also very important. Exercise can help dogs with diabetes, but it needs to be regulated because activity affects blood glucose levels. It’s best to create a consistent exercise routine for your diabetic dog and stick to it. Frequent veterinary checkups can help identify changes in your pet’s condition and help you to manage this disease successfully over time. Managing your dog or cat’s diabetes will require some effort, but the rewards are well worth it. Pets whose diabetes is under control have normal thirst, appetite, urination, and activity levels. Their weight is generally stable and they are less likely to develop complications.

This lovable rogue is Pluto. Pluto came to us through Munster lost and found pet helpline after he was hit by a car. Unfortunately, after all this time no owner has come forward for this boy. He has been treated for his injuries, neutered and given plenty of love while in our care but it is time for Pluto to find his forever home with an experienced owner. He is approximately 1 year old, and is very high energy so will need regular exercise. Contact Munster lost and found pet helpline if you are interested in rehoming Pluto <3
